Andres Cordoba, from Costa
Rica, first got involved with USHYEE after attending an Achieve Forum at Towson University a few years ago and has been a
member of the Owings Mills High School USHYEE Student Chapter ever since. He even went on to becoming an officer and an active
student advisor for the USC staff. Andres is currently a senior at OMHS and is taking three AP classes, including AP Biology,
AP Government, and AP English Literature, for which he will take the exams in May. He hopes to finish his high school career
in high standing, but is also excited to enjoying the next few months left of high school. He says that he wants “to
leave a legacy” at his high school and for future students by getting involved in different clubs and organizations,
which he has begun by joining his school’s Student Government Association and Science Club. Andres is also involved
in sports, such as tennis and badminton.
As a senior, Andres is already looking ahead
to his post-high school goals, naming University of Maryland-College Park, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Loyola
University Chicago, and Vanderbilt University as schools where he may want to pursue his education at. Andres would like to
major in Chemistry or Biology with a minor in East Asian studies prior to attending medical school to become a doctor. Although
he isn’t sure what his medical specialty will be, Andres cannot wait for what the future holds for him.
As a long-time member of the USHYEE family,
we wish Andres the best during his final year at Owings Mills High School and we know that he will continue to make our organization
proud. Looking back at everything that Andres has already accomplished there is no doubt that he will continue to excel in
every aspect of his life.
